Is Pope Francis secretly disappointed that St. Michael isn’t driving a “humble car” and feeding the poor?

Pope Francis said the statue of St. Michael with his sword piercing the devil is “an invitation to reflection and prayer.”

“Michael fights to re-establish divine justice,” he said. “He defends the people of God from their enemies, especially the enemy par excellence, the devil.”

The statue is a reminder that evil never wins, the pope said. The devil’s head is “crushed, because salvation was accomplished once for all with the blood of Christ.”

“In consecrating Vatican City to St. Michael the Archangel, we ask him to defend us from the evil one and cast him out,” the pope said.

  1. Be careful what you wish for, Your Holiness. St. Michael is liable to start seriously kicking some modernist Vatican a** and taking some heretical Vatican names.
